Announcing June’s Charity – Prostate Cancer Foundation

by Team Swagbucks on Fri, June 1st, 2012 at 1:00 pm

June is Men’s Health Month in many parts of the world.  A month to spread awareness of preventable diseases and health problems that are common among men and boys.  At the forefront of this is prostate cancer.  Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in America.  It is estimated that every 2.2 minutes someone else is diagnosed with prostate cancer.  Because most  prostate cancer takes a long time to grow, it can be difficult to detect, but 1 in 6 men get prostate cancer.  That is why this month, we are pleased to offer the Prostate Cancer Foundation as our charity of the month.

Founded in 1993, the Prostate Cancer Foundation is the world’s leading charity for seeking out and investing in the most promising research opportunities to reduce the spread of prostate cancer and help save the lives of those who have it.  During its operation, PCF has successfully helped push several new medications into research as well as pushing the number of FDA approved treatments from 7 to 12.  The Prostate Cancer Foundation has been uniquely successful at achieving both government and private support, funding more than 1,500 programs in about 200 research centers in 20 countries.

Please help us in supporting the Prostate Cancer Foundation’s continued success.
